International Pension Fund

IPF Operations 

The Bricklayers and Trowel Trades International Pension Plan was established in 1972 by the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers, and various Contractor Associations. It is financed by employer contributions established in collective bargaining agreements between the Union and employers participating in the International Pension Fund (IPF).
